WGC Matchplay apology
With an apology! The WGC-Dell Technologies Matchplay did not move from Austin Texas to Florida to the Concession club. The Tour website had a misprint! Anyway they’re on their way and Hughes, McIntyre, Kisner Won first round, Wallace, Watson and Niemann halved so can still go on. Louis got beaten by Kisner and only with Van Rooyen did we get it completely wrong!
Only 64 players, but a couple of previous winners give us a hope at odds. On Betfair:
Mackenzie Hughes-$270 Improving constantly
Robert McIntyre-$200 Scot with a lot of heart and game
Erik van Rooyen-$250 South African this format should suit
Matt Wallace-$250 intense Pom threatening at the top level
Kevin Kisner-$110 Won last year and runner up the year before!
Bubba Watson-$160 previous winner and mercurial talent
Louis Oosthuizen-$65 Always a threat if he putts well
Joaquin Niemann-$70 The toughest of the young group
